Friday 17 February 2023

Motorsport UK Academy drivers will receive expert insight and guidance from Greenlight Sports Management who have become the Academy’s latest Official Partner.

Founded by 2003 Le Mans24 Hour winner Guy Smith and Bentley Factory Driver and Team UK Performance Manager Andy Meyrick, the two will deliver workshops to Motorsport UK Academy drivers on the Enhanced Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DiSE) and Team UK Futures Programmes.

The workshops will enable drivers to receive crucial guidance on how to push their career forwards through the identification and management of opportunities to succeed on and off the track.

In addition, Motorsport UK Academy drivers not affiliated to another management company will be offered free consultation on their services from mentoring, representation and negotiation, administration, branding and content creation as well as PR and communications.

Hugh Chambers, Motorsport UK Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Young drivers are becoming increasingly aware of how they present themselves both on and off track. Guy and Andy have years of experience and through Greenlight Sports Management can provide the Motorsport UK Academy drivers with valuable insight on their own experience as well as helping to best support them on the next steps in their career.”

Andy Meyrick, Greenlight Sports Management Director, commented, “I’m absolutely delighted to announce our partnership with Motorsport UK. As a driver I have been part of the Team UK programme and subsequently have been Performance Manager for Team UK for many years now, therefore I am fully aware of the excellent work the academy provides and how it has contributed to so many talented British drivers. Guy and I are looking forward to adding and growing to this relationship with Motorsport UK.”
